Carbon Footprint of Life-Saving Treatments - Nov. 16, 2021

The Mary Ann Swetland Center for Environmental Health invites members of the Case Western Reserve University community to attend its upcoming monthly seminar on Nov. 16 from 9 to 10 a.m. ET.

Ashwini Sehgal, the Duncan Neuhauser Professor of Community Health Improvement at Case Western Reserve University and co-director of the Center for Reducing Health Disparities, will discuss the results of a study that quantified greenhouse gas emissions related to hemodialysis, as well as sources of variation across facilities, treatments and emission contributors.

Sehgal will help the audience understand the magnitude and variation of hemodialysis emissions, which may help identify measures to reduce the environmental impact.
